U.S. aims for 'major' North Korea disarmament in 2.5 years: Pompeo

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

"While I am glad the president and Kim Jong Un were able to meet, it is hard to determine what of concrete nature has occurred", Corker said in a statement.

Trump has defended the agreement as a major step in dealing with the threat of nuclear-armed North Korea and said he believed Kim's government would start the process of living up to the agreement right away.

Trump has bristled against questions over his decision to meet with Kim, whose country is estimated to have 80,000 to 120,000 political prisoners.

Trump returned to the United States on Wednesday and took to Twitter to hail the meeting, the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader, as a major win for American security. "'You know, we're spending a fortune, every couple of months we're doing war games with South Korea, and I said, 'What's this costing?"

Now a top analyst with United States Institute of Peace, Mr. Yun told CNN on Tuesday that halting joint U.S.

"Everybody is always criticizing us, and not happy with our coverage, whether it was president Clinton or president Bush or - they're all criticiz [ing]". "They can't threaten the United States in that way". He met for almost an hour with Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, at the air base before heading by motorcade to Seoul. After a three-way meeting with Pompeo and Japan's top diplomat, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha suggested the USA still had some explaining to do, telling reporters that the issue of the drills "was not discussed in depth".

Pompeo was scheduled to travel next to Beijing before returning to Washington.

The leaders signed a statement pledging to establish a new relationship.

His comments come a day after an unprecedented meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterized by bloodshed and threats.

In a statement North Korea agreed to work towards "complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula".

North Korea is believed to possess more than 50 nuclear warheads, with its atomic program spread across more than 100 sites constructed over decades to evade global inspections. "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

Pompeo faced immediate questioning from his traveling press about the content of the agreement with North Korea.

Joel Wit, a Stimson Center senior fellow and North Korea expert, told NPR that in such a timeline "you could probably disarm key portions of the North Korea nuclear program". -North Korean summit in Singapore.

At his press conference in the South Korean capital Pompeo defended Trump's stance, saying the joint drills could be brought back if negotiations with the North deteriorated.

He also noted that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has clearly been identified to lead future negotiations with a North Korean counterpart and that Mr. Trump separately said National Security Adviser John R. Bolton "will be working on the denuclearization issue, which is very positive". " That work, he said, was "beyond what was seen in the final document that will be in the place that we will begin when we return to our conversations".

The president's remarks about North Korea no longer being a threat were echoed Thursday by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who said the Trump-Kim summit meant the world had escaped the threat of war.

Pompeo, speaking to reporters just after he arrived in Seoul, said he was there when Trump talked about it with Kim, and the president "made very clear" that the condition for the freeze was that good-faith talks be ongoing. It's unclear whether the president informed USA allies in the region of his plan to end the "war games", as he called them, prior to his declaration.

Police said the women were also spotted near the Shangri-La Hotel, where Mr Trump had been staying, and had protest placards on them.
